And so we have left the “noughties”s and entered the 10s. It is a bit weird, it doesn’t feel like very long ago when year 2000 was just around the corner and everyone was afraid of the year 2000 problem, but it is ancient history now. So are the two bubbles that burst, the IT bubble and the finance bubble. And everything else that happened during this decade…
What the tens will bring with them is impossible to know, but it is during this decade that Jenny will be growing up. When the twenties hit us Jenny will be eleven years old, and I guess that she will connect the tens with her childhood. When she grows up, the fashion, music and technologies from the tens will be her “retro”, just as my generation has the 1980s.
No matter what, it is exciting to enter a new decade, even if the transition was during a night like all others (albeit rather cold). On the other hand, so it was when we entered the new millennium. All the excitement is as always in the eye of the beholder.
